JEMS Open Symposia 2017 & 2018: Challenges of Young Scientists

  1. Translesion synthesis (TLS) is an error-prone pathway required to overcome replication blockage by DNA damage. Aberrant activation of TLS has been suggested to play a role in tumorigenesis by promoting genetic...

    Authors: Megumi Sasatani, Elena Karamfilova Zaharieva and Kenji Kamiya
    Citation: Genes and Environment 2020 42:9
  2. The repeated-dose liver micronucleus (RDLMN) assay is an effective and important in vivo test for detecting genotoxic compounds, particularly for those that require metabolic activation to show genotoxicity. I...
